This held true for most Palm devices and I assume would be true for the iPhone battery.
The first time you use your device let it drain completely done then fully charge overnight.
Repeat this process at least twice preferably three times. After that the battery will have its "memory" and you can charge whenever you want to.
Most people will let the battery at least drop below 50% before they re-charge. Mine is usually at about 20% by the end of the day. I personally have found that if I turn the phone and WiFi off before I charge and then let it charge all night. I get good battery life. Many times I will even completely turn the unit off before charging.

I am not worried about the battery charge cycle because the iphone comes with a warranty. If its not holding a charge long enough go to apple and they will switch it out. If you have the phone for more than a year get apple care and you can do this for 2 more years.
Most people don't keep the same phone for a year, or even 6 months any more.

I always let it drain all the way then recharge. I also turn it off when I'm not using it much - IE sleeping, times when it would be inappropriate to have it on at work, etc. Seems to work pretty well as I've seen a decent (well, decent as it gets) staying time on it.
